Art and the philosophy of life

Archive for the ‘Chicago Cultural Center’ Category

This amazing art exhibit was at the Chicago Cultural Center. The potter is a disabled vet. He is anti-war and the entire proceeds from t-shirts, BOOKS and his pots, go to help others. His pots are $69 each but they are out of stock. Being among the pots is a moving experience and the horror of war is made real. His work is incredible, raw and profound. Each pot is a powerful message. 8 photographs.

I took this picture of the display but there were more on the other walls

If you are a vet or know someone who is…this is the website.  They have info for vets and ways to help them.  Look them up.

These are on the walls at the Chicago Cultural Center…the light fixtures, EVERYTHING, in the Center is ART, and no expense was spared.
